    Hi,
    today I tried dd-wrt22pre5 firmware on my wrt54gv22. But well, there are so many firmware in the archive... what are the differences between them:

    dd-wrt.v22.prefinal5_basic_generic.bin
    dd-wrt.v22.prefinal5_basic_wrt54g.bin

    dd-wrt.v22.prefinal5_generic.bin
    dd-wrt.v22.prefinal5_wrt54g.bin

    Why there is no /etc/hosts dialog in the dnsmasq/local dns config as it can be found using alchemy final? I have some clients here and they all should use my wrt as dns. The dynamic clients are listed by wrt-dns. But all my clients with static ip (not static dhcp) like printer and the wrt are not listed by wrt's dns.

    Generic is for generic hardware that runs on Broadcom chip (they are some routers such as Aztech , etc...I am not really sure about this). As for Basic , its just includes the basic tool (does not include all those extras like BearShare , etc..Just the basic)..The other one is full package...ideal for those that want to get more functions
